2003 Guthrie County - Bob ElginBob Elgin lived and farmed in the Adair area with his wife Janyce and their four children until he passed away in 1975. During that period of time he was a leader of the Grant Sky Eagles club from 1955-1971.  He also served on the Guthrie County Youth Committee form 1971-1975.  He contributed much time and dedication to 4-H and the community.  

A former 4-H member himself, Bob always encouraged 4-H’ers to set their sights on greater expectations.  The Grant Sky Eagles club today still remains very active in the county with approximately 30 members.  An “Outstanding Intermediate Award” was established by the Youth Committee in Bob Elgin’s name in 1975 and has been supported by the family ever since.  Criteria for this award include showing leadership qualities in the club and community, and that is exactly what Bob is remembered for.
